About ACE

The Association of Christian Economists (ACE) was formed in December, 1982, at the Allied Social Science Association meetings. ACE aims to encourage Christian scholars to explore and communicate the relationship between their faith and the discipline of economics, and to promote interaction and communication among Christian economists. ACE currently has approximately 300 members -- Christian economists in academia, business, and government, drawn from around the globe.

ACE-sponsored activities include:

    1. Faith & Economics, a review published by the Association of Christian Economists each spring and fall, includes news, book reviews, and articles dealing with the relationship between the Christian faith and economics.
    2. ACE Working Papers series.
    3. Professional sessions and an annual meeting, held as part of the annual gathering of the Allied Social Sciences Associations in the US every January.
    4. Occasional fellowship and professional gatherings held at other times and places.
